Psoriasis and Bullying

Last updated: September 2018

It's shocking what some people will say about our skin. "Is it contagious?" "Ewww disgusting." Make no mistake about it, Psoriasis Bullying is a real thing. Unfortunately, it doesn't just come from mean or ignorant strangers. Thoughtless comments from family members can be especially hurtful - particularly when directed towards children and teens with psoriasis.
